Limited Edition: Hertrampf-Ducati Diavel
Processed Ducati with hellish steam
A Ducati Diavel that deserves its name. This reprocessed Duc has a hell of a lot of steam, an infernal sound and a really bad being. No doubt: the incarnate would ride this conversion.
Exit from town, somewhere in the Swabian hinterland. The throttle hand folds down. A deafening crash tears the rural idyll apart; a sound like hell is exploding. Caused by the open accessory exhaust, the pimped up D.ucati Diavel is stuck and hammering such a brutal soundscape outside that mere mortals give everything for a set of earplugs when the cable is stretched. "Hot!", say some. "Too much", find others. Most of the residents of popular motorcycle routes belong to the latter, and sheriffs are definitely one of them.
However, some advantages of the exhaust on the Ducati Diavel built by the North German dealer Hertrampf (www.ducatiplus.de) are undisputed: With its carbon fiber-coated, funnel-shaped tailpipes, the system looks phenomenal and clearly puts the original in the shade. It also helps to save weight: At 227 kilograms, the Hertrampf-Ducati Diavel weighs around 10 kilograms less than the production bike. In addition, the complete system exhales much more freely thanks to the lack of innards such as catalytic converters or noise insulation, which increases performance with a corresponding exhaust gas volume.
The lightweight complete system hammers brutal sound from its funnel-shaped end pots.
For as much cylinder filling as possible, Hertrampf reworked the ducts of the Ducati Diavel in the cylinder head and reprogrammed the original electronic engine control. "Over the entire speed range, we are clearly above the series in terms of power and torque. In addition, our Diavel accelerates much more spontaneously", raves the tuner. Right. The cure between 3000 / min and 7000 / min is particularly noticeable, where the tuned Ducati Diavel converts every small movement of the throttle grip into rapid forward thrust. Whoever fully cocks the tap in this area is surfing a huge torque wave towards eternity – simply wonderful! On the engine side, everything remained the same except for these changes. Which once again illustrates how much additional punch skilled tinkerers can squeeze out of a series engine with manageable effort if they ignore noise and exhaust emissions.
There is further potential in the chassis of the Ducati Diavel. To make the most of it, Hertrampf completely rebuilt the original fork and replaced the standard shock absorber with one from Öhlins. Front and rear respond cleanly and smooth most of the asphalt furrows perfectly. Nevertheless, at least the set-up of the shock absorber turned out to be quite tight and required a completely open compression damping for acceptable comfort on bad terrain.
In contrast, the revised fork of the Ducati Diavel sometimes hits a hard metal block when braking hard over deep bumps. The bottom line is that it works noticeably better than its series counterpart, for which we could not find an optimal setting in a comparison test (PS 10/2011). The stylish, casual seating position for power cruising has not changed.
For a hellish outfit, Hertrampf painted some trim parts of the Ducati Diavel in bright red and also donated a different brake and clutch fitting. The bike also shines with anodized handlebar grips. However, they are a bit thicker than the originals, which takes a little getting used to. But anyone who dances in hell with this bike can only laugh at such trivialities. Laugh like hell.
Handles, mirrors, levers, lids: these gimmicks also help to give the Diavel a personal touch .
